'The Mirror Sees Best in the Dark,' a self-curated exhibition by artist and founder member of Kochi Biennale, Bose Krishnamachari, will be premiered on December 21 at Emami Art, the recently launched art gallery located within Kolkata Centre for Creativity (KCC).
Bose is exhibiting the solo show after nine years. In the exhibition, Bose investigates the state of obsession. According to the artist, the lure and pull that an obsession can wield, is similar to that of a mirror. A mirror reflects you back to yourself. A mirror also lures you in; entraps you. It accumulates your obsessions. It symbolises obsession.
In the show, the artist will look at relationships, politics, faiths, wisdom, communities, gurus - our obsessions. He will look at image and icon, word and number- as literal sense and metaphorical gesture, through abstract minimalism and ornamental maximalism.
The show will remain on view from 6:30pm to 9pm till March 10, 2020.
A recipient of British Council travel award, Mid America Arts Alliance Award, Charles Wallace India Trust, Life Time Fellowship Award- Kerala Lalita Kala Academy, Bose completed his MFA from Goldsmiths College, University of London.
